11:06 Womad Taranaki 2013 - LA-33 and Hugh Masekela
Over three days in March 2013, the Womad Festival brought a rich mix of musical and cultural flavours from around the globe to Taranaki. Radio NZ National was on hand to record the performances and talk to the performers.
n this programme recorded live at Womad Taranaki 2013 we feature from Columbia, the good time, salsa infused vibrations of 12 piece Latin sensations LA-33, named after Calle 33, their home street in Bogata. Also, a performance by Hugh Masekela, the two-time Grammy awarded artist who is regarded as Africa´s most influential jazz musician. Masekela has packed several life-times into his industrious career and even in his early 70s shows no signs of slowing down.
